It is Spring 2002, with local elections looming. A mosque is being built on the site where Cinderheath's iconic steelworks once dominated the town. 'The Tipton Three', from just down the road, are imprisoned in Guantanomo; the BNP expect to win new seats on the council. St. George's flags fly from cars and windows: the World Cup is beginning, England to play Argentina. But first, a controversial Sunday-league football game must take place, billed by the press as 'a match to spark a race war'.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is what fiction should be: passionately engaged * David Peace *
Heartland has similar scope to Don DeLillo's Underworld-and such ambition pays. This impressive novel succeeds in giving voice to a part of the country that is more frequently spoken about than listened to -- Phil Oltermann * The Observer *
A snapshot of Britian in a way I haven't seen done before. Toweringly well written . . . I love this book -- The Simon Mayo Books Panel * BBC Radio 5 Live *
A resonant tale of love, politics and football * Jonathan Coe *
A great book about football . . . If you read a better complement to the game this year you'll be lucky * When Saturday Comes *
